I've been lurking on the boards for several months and have posted a couple of times. After reading, and reading, and more reading, I decided to jump in and buy a Valentine. I literally just clicked the "Submit Order" button on the V1 website. I'm still trying to convince myself that spending $399 was a good idea.
I chose the V1 for it's laser detection. Our local deputies like the laser a lot. I work in a hospital ER and have had a few discussions with them on the topic. An order for Roy's license plate cover and some Veil will be next on the list. My car is a metallic silver Intrepid and probably glows in the dark if you're a laser gun.
A couple of questions come to mind. I live in Utah, which bans laser jamming. I'm sure the statute applies to Blinders/Lidatek/etc. But, what about Veil and the plate cover? I suppose a really enthusiastic prosecutor could call that jamming. Anyone in similar states have any experience in this regard?
I'm also planning a trip to Southern California in the fall. My wife and kids want to go to Disneyland (shudder), but I'm interested to see what the V1 sees in Los Angeles. I'm planning to watch my speed carefully because I don't know the area, so we'll see what happens.
